Humans of TU Delft: Jens Bömer

Jens Bӧmer expected to feel like the strongest and most awesome guy in this world ever after finishing his PhD.

"After finishing my PhD at TU Delft last year I expected to feel like the strongest and most awesome guy in this world ever, but what I realised was that I couldn't experience that freedom immediately.

I suddenly became aware of all the weight that this PhD had put on me and my family. I would say there has been a deferred gratification of completing it. I think in a nutshell I'm still trying to figure out what this new life of being a doctor actually means.

Nevertheless, the best experience really has been the process of becoming a doctor which allowed me to live in Delft for a few years and which has become a dear place for me and my family."
